I did plan to get in early today but the Northern Line conspired against me. And then another distraction - a new version of Firefox. The much anticipated 3.0 - the difficult third album. Anyway - since I'm running late anyway I thought I might as well waste
a few more minutes trying it out and checking the site works with it.
And I'm glad I bothered. It's noticeably speedier. They're fiddled with the interface - always contentious - but so far all I've seen are improvements. It apparently uses less memory too and has souped-up security - well we'll see about that in due course
- but first impressions are that this is well worth the minute or two spent downloading all 7Mb of it and installing!
Get it here
We already found here in Finextra towers that Firefox 2.0 left IE7 standing in performance terms - now it's even further behind! Mind you - Microsoft certainly lead in the PR dept - I doubt they'd have
messed up a launch like this.
